The Dark Ones: DMP 2K17 – Night of the Walking Dead Man’s Party

The Dark Ones: DMP 2K17 – Night of the Walking Dead Man’s Party  (Link to Flickr)

Where did all these zombies come from? Was it the recent near-miss of Comet Nibiru? Was there a secret toxic spill, or a virus covered up by the government? Perhaps a descendant of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau has discovered her legacy? They’ve been saying “Winter is coming” for awhile now… Or maybe it’s really just as simple as accidental Worcestershire sauce in the embalming fluid (not pinkeye).

Whatever the reason for the plague of undead, they’re coming to get you, Barbara. What are you going to do when things get bitey? and don’t forget to Double-Tap! Dress up as your favorite zombie or zombie killer, and come ready to drink, dance, dodge, and dine! Donations are always welcome, and we invite you to bring a dish to share, for as we all know, the hunger of the undead is never-ending.

Costume ideas are easy — Undead, recently dead, survivors [I’m not dead yet!], classic zombie (walker, biter, infected, etc), white walker, wight, voodoo practitioner, bio hazard/radiation bunnysuit, Walking Dead character, character from any Romero-era zombie flick, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Warm Bodies, 28 Days, World War Z, I Zombie, the list goes on and on. Whatever you choose, you’ve probably “got red on you”.

The Dark Ones April Party 2016: Elder Gods

ATTENTION: The LINK to the April Party Pics is at the BOTTOM of this post.  Oh, sure…you COULD skip straight to it by scrolling all the way down. But I GUARANTEE you will miss some interesting stuff that you may just wind up regretting for a very long time… Just Sayin’

DARK HORRORS FROM BEYOND!
Older than Angels, darker than Devils…

“Antiquarians say the Elder Gods were Gaia, Thoth, Tiamat, and the Titans, the sires of gods. Darker sources claim the elder gods lay hidden, in a formless Chaos that came before history with names like Azathoth, Yog Sothoth, Shub Niggurath, and the eldritch Cthulhu… the “Great Old Ones”.

Experts on the elder gods are rare, and rarely sane. The most respected and stable are those from Miskatonic University, a center of occult studies and inter-dimensional sciences. The Druid Gannd quoted from a lecture by Dr. LeHo at the school’s Dachaigh Annex “The nexus of power forming here in Arizona implicates a pending visitation to this site.” Gannd followed, “Fellow scholars, join me as we visit these ancient altars.”
The Dark Ones invite all adventurers, occultist, sorcerers, investigators, researchers and Miskatonic Alumni to come to the Dachaigh Campus in Glendale,AZ on the evening of April 30, 2016.”

For my Teaser Images from the set, and to start you all skipping down the path to the Insanity of the Elder Gods, I would actually like to get serious for a moment and highlight the talents of two very good friends, who both “just happen” to be beautiful Redheads. Have I ever mentioned to you that I have a “Thing” for redheads? No? Oh…  Both of these ladies are so hot they could only be illuminated by Flames (Tiki Torches in fact). That is the light source I used to capture both of these portraits.

First is Tori.  She is a model, photographer, and Storm Chaser (No, I’m not making that last one up).
Her Storm Photography has been seen on local news sites here in AZ and elsewhere.
She also sells prints of her personal and storm photography as a “Raw Artist” They are literally as painfully beautiful as she herself is.
Tori is about to embark on an adventure that is a Storm Chasers dream! It’s straight out of the plot of the movie “Twister”!
Tori is one of the newest members of the team who will be attempting to launch a new bit of Storm Technology INTO a Live Tornado!
It’s called The Dust Devil Project. She was also named as one of the speakers at the Upcoming (as of the time of this writing) MonsoonCon 2016. You can keep up to date on all of her exploits on her Facebook Page

My next favorite Redhead is Nola Yergen of Design by Nola. Aside from being a personal friend, Nola is, more importantly
an Award Winning Costume Designer who, as you can see is as Gorgeous as she is talented.
She has worked on several film projects as well as teaching Theatre at Grand Canyon University here in Phoenix Az.

The Dark Ones April Party 2015 – Grimms Fairy Tales

Once again we play our dangerous game, And play it well. Reaching back in human history to a time before Disney twisted and crushed the spirit out of the Time Honored Oral Tradition of story telling.
The Brothers Grimm collected and published stories they personally collected to be shared in the far reaches of the world.
Tales of Children at play: As Butchers.
Tales of Romance and Love: And severed toes!
Tales of woe so horrific that they themselves had to edit them to make them more…palatable for their audience.
However, for the Dark Ones…they were Perfect Stories JUST the WAY they WERE!
We Ate, and Danced and Sang and celebrated the company of good friends and wicked tales. Fairy Tales. Grimm Fairy Tales!
